According to my understanding (which may be ill-informed) of Islam, Allah has the power to change His own will. However, Christians believe in--and have argued strongly for--the immutability of God. He is the Unchanging Changer, according to Christians. How would Muslims respond to the argument that God is changeless? For example, the Christian philosopher Edward Feser has written Five Proofs for the Existence of God wherein he argues for the immutability/changelessness of the Creator?

If you know of any good books on Muslim metaphysics that would enlighten me, feel free to tell me about them. But they have to free or cheap.

Brother First of all, Allah Himself said, That whatever Allah Wills, He Just say "Kun" & It happens. Secondly, Neither we are allowed to question about the domain which is out of our knowledge nor these Discussions are fruitfull. We accept Allah's attributes as He informed us, We don't question it nor put our Brains into it, as it doesn't benefits in any manner. So, what should our concerns be, is, we are given the abilities to change our Wills. So, let us change wherever we are wronging our selves. :)
